Bad Behavior is a Symptom of a Heart Issue

If you want a more peaceful home don’t take the normal parenting short-term approach. Correcting your children’s behavior is important and it’s vital to be consistent, but if you don’t tend to their hearts while doing so, it will lead to frustration over time. It also misses an important opportunity for getting to the heart level of the issue with your children that should end by pointing them to Jesus. A biblically based approach to correcting your children. Remember, if you don’t have their heart in this season, you will likely lose it in the next.

Who’s Spiritually Leading Your Family?

We all must ask this question and be willing to be honest about it. With about 80% of the children raised in Christian homes leaving the church by age 18, we must do things differently than most Christian parents. So who is spiritually leading your family? As parents, I hope we all would want to say “We are”, but the truth is most aren’t. Not with the intentionality and frequency the bible talks about in Deuteronomy 6:6-9. While a church's influence is good and needed, if that’s where they get most of their Spiritual nourishment, then parents are failing in this area. Isaac and Angie Tolpin dive into what the Bible says about gender roles in the family and the importance of both mom and dad having influence while respecting God’s plan for the family. They even go into what if your husband isn’t a Christian, and direction for single moms and dads too.

Tough Kid Conversations, Hormones, & Angie’s Big Changes

Hormones are a big conversation but an important one for parents. Every child is impacted by the changes that occur in their bodies as they grow, but families are also impacted by the hormones of Mom and Dad as well.

Cultivate a Relationship vs. a Religious Driven Home

You want to cultivate a relationship-driven home versus a religious home. I think we would all agree that the Christian faith is all about a real ongoing relationship with Jesus. But too often without even realizing it, in the eyes of growing children, they see a religious home that’s more about a couple of weekly events but not enough about a relationship. This starts with our own relationship with Jesus which influences our relationship with our children too. Don’t let life be too busy where you're not actually cultivating deep relationships that are growing with your children and a home that daily reflects its inhabitants having a growing relationship with God.

We believe the balanced life is a myth and the expectation of living a more idyllic balanced life at some point may not be healthy for various reasons we discuss.

If a balanced life is the end goal there’s more harm than good that will likely come from it. We need to be raising resilient children, and the pursuit of comfort, ease, and idyllic balance in our lives will likely create weaker adults that enter a world that requires resiliency.

"Shiny Happy People" - Dangers of Patriarchy & Quiverfull Movements

The Amazon docu-series “Shiny Happy People” brings up some important conversations relevant to Christianity today. In this podcast episode, Isaac and Angie discuss concerns regarding the Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements which do need to be talked about. We want to stay on the biblical road and not fall into the ditches of legalism or on the opposite side, moral relativism. It takes continually drawing close to the Lord, reading His Word, and discerning what’s true, and what is going to be fruitful for your family. As always, the Tolpin’s aren’t afraid to discuss the hard topics and give their best to help the Body of Christ.
